Junior reliever Jake Walsh got the five-out save for the Tigers, his fourth of the season.

“When I go in, no one’s going to score on me,” he said. “When I go in and I see a close game of one or two runs, my energy level just shoots up. I just compete and give it more every time I get out there.”

The Missouri baseball team was ahead 3-2 in the bottom of the seventh. Starting pitcher Blake Holovach had loaded the bases and manager Tim Jamieson called on Ross, a senior, to get the Tigers out of the jam.

On his first pitch, Ross got UNC-Charlotte pinch hitter Tony Montalbano to ground out to the second basemen.

Collapse avoided.
